Given the popularity of emulators and retrogaming combined with newer companies looking to provide huge libraries of games in a Netflix-style distribution, it comes as no surprise that Nintendo is looking to revive legacy games from ages and consoles past. Together with Sega, they will be jointly developing a “virtual console” service for the Revolution that will feature hundreds and possibly thousands of old NES, TurboGrafx 16 and Genesis titles. Whether they will be remakes, emulated or have a native hardware component isn't revealed, nor is the pricing on them. Console consolidation, that does have a nice ring to it, and will be one more selling point for the up and coming Revolution.
